Brian Murdoch is the courageous first speaker in Langley Centennial Museum’s Art of the Book series kicking off this week. His talk is Thursday April 9 at 7:00.
The Murdochs have owned and operated Murdoch’s Bookshoppe in Mission for just over two decades. They have seen some pretty special books pass through their hands — from well-thumbed classics to the rarest of the rare. Brian says
We have a strong collection of Canadiana in general, including First Nations material, as well as titles on the history of British Columbia. You will also find in our collection First Editions, signed copies, military history, poetry and, of course, rare books. In the final analysis, book browsing and collecting should be enjoyable, whether you are seeking an antiquarian title or staple-bound ephemera of local history. We look forward to having the opportunity to assist in building your collection!
I am looking forward to hearing Brian talk about his career in the book business and the importance of the book beyond the text.
